Grayton Beach has a lovely beach area, several hiking opportunities and a well kept campground with good amenities. It is in a popular Gulf Coast area and reservations are a must for camping. Down the road are stores, restaurants and a park cabin rental area.

We spent the day driving the famous 30A and stopping to see all the beautiful beaches. I wanted to get closer to the dunes so we paid $5 to get into the State Park. We were so glad we did. There was a trail out to the dunes through an oak hammock. The mile walk took us along the coastline... More

When my wife and I visited N. Florida in mid-February, I was anxious to show her the "old Florida" beaches. I grew up on this coast. I remember dunes, ample sand, warm water; not the condos and hotels that line the beaches now. Looking at a map and Trip Advisor, I found this park not far from Panama City Beach.... More

We have camped a few times at Grayton Beach State Park Campground. We think of this as our home campground! You are within walking distance of the beach, but it is a long walk! The beach here is beautiful! The campsites are very nice. The older loop has lots of foliage making the campsites very private. Some sites back up... More

We loved our visit to Grayton Beach State Park - worth the drive from Ft. Walton Beach; the beach is beautiful; trails to hike and food establishments not too far away. Would definitely choose this Park again if we come back to the Panhandle area.

Rolling dunes, breath taking views, and one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Great place to camp, bring your RV, or rent a cabin.

To walk among the sand dunes is a good hike. The views and walk is fun and different than usual hikes. We spent the day there, with a packed lunch after the hike. A wonderful day trip.

Grayton Beach is managing to retain its "old Florida" charm despite the new builds. It is located along SR 30A with Grayton State Park next door. A paved bike path runs along 30A and connects the beach towns. We were there in the off season and I walked the beach in the cool mornings with not another person in sight... More

This is a beautiful park that enables you to get away from the masses on 30A. The bathhouse was immaculate and large. A wonderful place to walk on the beach and watch beautiful sunsets in the winter. Would highly recommend it during the low season. Not sure how it would be in the summer time. Gorgeous in January!

We visited Grayton Beach because a local person told us to go there. It was January, very few people, which we liked. It only cost $5 to drive in; and that was good for the whole day. The park had beautiful surrounding that was quiet and relaxing; nothing fancy. All of us enjoyed the relaxing tranquility of the beach. The... More
